What to expect on the night from Russell...

"Articles on the subject of leadership skills and how to improve the capabilities of our business leaders appear daily in the press and in our social media feeds but what is a leader and why do we need them? During our evening together Russell Dalgleish will share his own personal journey as a leader over the last twenty years, the highs and the lows! Having worked in Technology, Finance, Energy and the Arts sectors across the globe hopefully all will gain some level of identification from the evening.
